    Dear Mom,

    I will miss you very much. I am very sorry I was not there when you passed and that I am not able to come to your funeral. It breaks my heart as I would like to be there. I wish that I would have gotten to get to know you better before you passed but we lived so far away. I always remember the good times. I am so happy that you were able to meet Payton. I am glad that you are peaceful now and are in heaven with the angels. We will live on your memories and will cherish you in our hearts and you will not be forgotten. With all of our love,

    Jenny, Aron, Payton, Addyson and Taylor

    P.S I love you mom xoxoxoxooxox
